Heartfelt & Inspiring, a good read!
I chose this book, thinking it would be a story about a woman who triuphs over great tragedy. That type of book always inspires me. I found it to be so much more.
It is an account of well-educated Kristens experiences being tragicly wrenched from her everyday American life and the course her life took after that. She was a happily married, stay at home mom taken into adversity she could never have dreamed of, losing her beloved husband in the 9-11 attacks.
I appreciated the political education that she gained the hard way. That was a bonus.
She is an inspiration. Kristen is strength and grace under fire.
She really should run for office!
